    it would really shock me if they haven't by now, a nuke on a satellite would be a very effective weapon as an EMP

    the only reason i can think of why they wouldn't is that a satellite like that would be unaccounted for and any nation that has that hovering over them would get pissed off very fast.

    still, you could just say its a weather satellite or something...

    and that thing creeps the fuck out of me

    Something tells me that this treaty:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_Space_Treaty

    Should curb anyones interests in getting caught doing this anyway, they wouldn't want to deal with the political repurcussions...

    The 1967 Outer Space treaty has no expiration date, and has been signed and-or ratified by nearlly every country, including the ones with currently active space programs.

    "As of January 2007, 98 countries are states-parties to the treaty, while another 27 have signed the treaty but have not yet completed ratification"

    I don't think there would be much advantage to doing that over just keeping them mounted on missiles in submarines etc. With a sumbarine-launched missiles you can already hit anywhere in the world, so why go through the extra expense of putting it on a satilite? In fact, it's actually better to keep them in submarines because satilites are very easy to track and destroy, while submarines are very hard to track and destroy.
